Taco-bout a delicious holiday you can really sink your teeth into – it's not only Taco Tuesday, it’s also National Taco Day.

According to the official website, Americans ate more than 4.5 billion tacos in 2015. That's 775 million pounds, equal to the weight of two Empire State Buildings.

National Taco Day officially began in 2009.

According to historians, the first tacos were eaten by native Mexicans before the arrival of Europeans that were filled with small fish.
